Track Name: What Are You Doing On My Beach?
Depressed, thinking of the mess that I've made
and how I've never felt better.
Depressed, thinking of the mess that I've made
and how I've never felt deader.

I'm sorry for everything
I can't help wondering
if it's the way I am or just shitty timing.
the stance you had when you said "I don't want to leave"
completely contradicted your face

I don't know where you are
I just know that I miss you.
I just want you to know I miss you.

And nothing feels worse than when you're gone
I don't wanna die unless it's with you
But you've moved away
and I know I'll die
of course I'll die.

So why do I even try?
Why do I even try?
It's been six long years
I'm dead inside
why do I even try?
Track Name: I Don't Even Like Me
My loneliness stretches across the ocean
I've had a better time drowning in it
Nothing seems important
and everything feels worthless
I can't say I'm getting much out of these days
And now it's up to my fucking neck.

I'm sorry I can't control the flow of water
or where the lightning strikes
It's just a wasted effort
I think I'm trying too hard

And nothing in my life compares
to the sight of you
and nothing alive
could ever be as bright as you

even though our town is so cold and shitty
I just want to go home.
I'm looking at you and everything feels alright
even though our town is so cold and grey
I'm looking at you and everything feels alright

There's nothing to gain here
so I say we just leave
let's call it a draw
we'll call the whole thing off

I'm sorry I can't control the flow of water
or where the lightning strikes
It's just a wasted effort
I think I'm trying too hard

even though our town is so cold and shitty
I just want to go home.
I'm looking at you and everything feels alright
even though our town is so cold and grey
I'd spend a lifetime here just to die with you.

Well I'd rather be anywhere else
rather be anywhere else
someplace else
Track Name: Rabbit Troupe Forever!
It's hard to admit things won't work out
I'll kill myself so you have something to write about
It's sad to admit I've called it quits
I'll kill myself,
but not over this.

If you have to count on more than one hand
the time's you've had to watch someone else leave
then I'm right there -
I'm right there with you
It's people like you
that make me happy
to be by myself

Somethings just don't work out
that's a part of growing up I could do without.

Unsure of the time, I've broken all my clocks.
(My backdoor hangs open, my bedroom is always closed
and I'm tired of trying to see through tears)
I'd hardly consider this a present,
just trying to remember better days
(It's been a real long string of days
I can't remember what month it is)

My front door is locked up -
it's the only place that has one
(and I'm tired of waking up scared)
I'm glad I never gave you the key
I'm happy I don't know where you are

And I'm trying to remember those days.
Track Name: There's No Composition
Sleeping in the dirt
Freezing, waiting for the rising sun.
The warmth in my blood,
and your presence,
never to return
I'll burn myself alive
and hope for better things to come.

How long have I been condemned to this place, looking out over that which defines me? All that I survey awash with the waves, breaking only just at my feet. The light that once was, that I fear may never be again. Yet, still, I carry on this search. As I wade into that which terrifies me, it all but overtakes me. Each time I set out I awake anew fatigued - I can go no further. Never drowning, perpetually suffocating. This water once gave me purpose, but what is there now?

How terrible it is to love something Death can touch.
